Subjects:
1. Media Attribution Using Machine Learning

Within O/P we have implemented multiple attribution models to calculate the added value of online media investments. The model we use at our customers is based on Game Theory, to be more specific on the Shapley value which is discussed in the paper by Dalessandro [1]. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our attribution model and exploring different techniques like Neural networks. In the paper by Ren [2] a Recurrent Neural Network for the multi-touch attribution problem is proposed. In your thesis you will be implementing this or a similar technique and compare the results to our current model.

2. Bayesian Methods for Media Mix Modeling and Budget Allocation

Within O/P we have implemented Media Mix Modelling (MMM) to calculate the effects of TV and Radio (and other media channels) on bottom line sales. One of the challenges with a media mix model are the carryover and shape effects of advertising. Next to this, media managers often have a strong hypothesis (prior knowledge) on the effect of a certain channel on bottom line performance (for example based on the number of people reached by that channel). In your thesis you will investigate the Bayesian Methods for Media Mix Modeling proposed by [3] and possibly extend this approach to be working in practice. This approach captures both the challenge carryover and shape effects and has room for the use of prior knowledge.
